Dark Phoenix trailer reminds people X-Men is still a film franchise

by Andy Haighon 29/09/2018
The first trailer for Fox’s latest X-Men film Dark Phoenix has just dropped onto the internet. Dark Phoenix is the seventh X-Men film from Fox, or the third, or the fourth, since they ‘rebooted’ the franchise. Depending on how you actually count them. The latest attempt from Fox to hoover up some of that superhero […]

Rogue Trooper film from Duncan Jones announced

by Andy Haighon 17/07/2018
Some rather surprising, but definitely welcome, as it’s been announced that Duncan Jones, director of Moon, Source Code and more, is bringing 2000AD’s Rogue Trooper to the big screen. Rogue Trooper was created by writer Gerry Finley-Day and artist Dave Gibbons and first appeared in 2000AD back in 1981. The original story revolved around a […]

Black Library announces Warhammer Adventures

by Andy Haighon 27/05/2018
Black Library, Games Workshop’s publishing arm, made an announcement recently which could quite easily have been mistaken for something from satirical website The Daily Mash – A series of books (set in the worlds of 40K and Age of Sigmar aka Warhammer for the old guard) aimed at young kids. Warhammer Adventures is exactly that. […]

Kickstarter spotlight Eternal Kings

by Andy Haighon 10/02/2018
Rolanda Issa’s Eternal Kings does something which strikes me as such a ‘why has nobody done this already?’ thing it kind boggles my mind. Eternal Kings to explain it in a simple way takes Chess, which almost everybody has played at some point, and combines it with a card game like for example Magic The […]

Fan film Never Hike Alone rejuvenates Friday The 13th

by Andy Haighon 17/10/2017
Friday The 13th is one of the biggest franchises in horror film history. Jason Vorhees, the hockey mask wearing killer, has long been absorbed into the pop culture landscape but in terms of film the franchise has been pretty dead since a failed attempt to reboot it in 2009. Then a further attempt to revive […]

“You are already dead”. Depending on your age and how much parental supervision you had as a kid that phrase is possibly etched into your memory as the  memorable phrase spoken by Kenshiro just before someone’s head exploded. Kenshiro is the main star of Hokuto no Ken, or as it’s known in the West Fist […]

Second trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans attempts to make up for first

by Andy Haighon 21/07/2017
The second trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans is here and it’s really not doing a good job of selling itself. The upcoming Inhumans series debut trailer didn’t exactly win potential fans over. The characters were wearing seemingly cheap and bland looking costumes, they were walking along corridors in a bland and cheap looking set. Worse though […]

The Mist

by Andy Haighon 30/06/2017
The Mist, based on a short story by Stephen King, has a pretty simple concept. A strange mist descends upon a small town in America. There are things in the mist. Bad things. A selection of characters, who have various histories between them, hole up to wait it out. One of the major differences between […]

The final trailer for Luc Besson’s upcoming Valerian just appeared, and it further emphasises that it will be an eye popping visual feast featuring a vast sci-fi world full of colourful aliens, robots and more besides. Adapted from the long running and influential French comic Valérian et Laureline by writer Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude […]
